Hey guys...

 

Good to be back in BKK after an absence of some four years... I am, of course, putting together a trip report with what are, to me at least, some interesting observations from a different lens (why are there the same massage boys on Soi Twilight as when I left last time?),but that will come with the easing of persistent jet lag discomfort (long trip from New York...)

 

For the moment, a Babylon question, though... I have a friend arriving from Manila in a few days and he is eager to try some more open settings for play. As I recall, there is a sort of dungeon-y area at Babylon but when I was there (yesterday) I could not find it, which makes me think that not all areas are open at all times ... I was there for day time poolside relaxation.

 

Can anyone help me/us out here? 

 

BTW.... Not to dilute my own topic, but let me throw in a side query... When I went back to my old fave, the now rather sad Super A, I was really annoyed by the pressure to buy drinks for people I had no interest in. How can one politely decline such unwanted pressure?

 

Thanks - and good to be back!

4.30 or so the other side accessed through the courtyard bat opens. Go upstairs and then you can go downstairs to the dungeons bit. I think sometimes that area is nude. Enjoy.

The last time I was at Babylon was in April 2016, but from immemorial times they have besides a main area that includes the pool a second area which opens later in the afternoon (5PM?) which includes the patio with the bar, the large collection of open showers ending in the second dark steam room, and a large fraction of the upstairs rooms.  A third area with more upstairs rooms opens only on special occasions.

Only drink you are supposed to buy is your own. Sure you can politely or at times not even very politely , decline buying it for others although pressure probably will continue unfortunately.

Easier to say than stand your ground so if you really want to spend some time in the bar be prepared to succumb and buy the damn drink if only to avoid pestering and still to have a chance to ogle boys.

The dungeon area is closed until September for remolding. They are introducing a new format.

You recall correctly. When I was in Babylon Oct 2016 that area was open on Sunday evening (but not on a Tuesday afternoon). I think it is only open on specific times of the week. It is a naked zone. It is located on a lower level with special stairs. There is a staff member that takes your towel and gives you a bracelet for you to take your towel back upon going up. It is indeed a semi open dungeony area with some open and some private space for play.

Not sure if only on Sunday evening. But certainly it is not always open since it was closed on Tuesday afternoon on the same week.

yes, that "naked zone" at Babylon is not always open. It may or may not be open daily, but only later in the evenings, I think something like from pm, but that may vary depending on the weekday, too. Unortunately, their website is not well maintained with regard to information about such details.

 

Alternatively, if you want open play, I'd suggest and recommend the orgy parties ar R3 Sauna, most Saturdays I think. Check their website www.r3sauna.com

Totally agreed! I visited that place on the same trip, last October. Reported on the 4th paragraph of this link:

The small "naked zone" at Babylon is a favorable addition they did several years ago, maybe in response of criticisms that the place lacked such entertainment.  It is accessed from the upper cruising area that opens in the afternoon, guarded by an attendant who takes the towels of the guests entering naked, and leads down some hard stair case to the small dark maze. It is a good start, and hopefully the owner sees the potential of making it more exciting, although he has enough business already.  I would suggest to have two rooms, one with soapy water raining down, the other with clean water showering down to clean the soap. There is nothing that heats up so much and refreshes at the same time than a nude crowd rubbing together in foam baths.

I always try to do it with a smile.  Having said that, I admit I have a soft spot for these three holes-in-the-wall (Golden Cock, Nature Boy and SA) and end up buying more drinks than I originally intended.

 

Rising real estate values in that soi will probably gobble up the buildings in the not too distant future. The bars may not be much to look but oh how I wish there were ones like them back home. Guess I have that in the back of my mind whenever I'm the neighborhood.

 

Another option if you've decided on a particular guy is to just pay the off fee without buying drinks or take him upstairs for massage (500 bht in either case, plus tip of course).
